In Rajya Sabha Narendra Modi condemns his minister's abusive remark; but the opposition adamant on Sadhvi's resignation
After three days of continuous uproar in the upper house of the Parliament on the matter of abusive remark made by Union minister for State for Food Processing Industry, Sadhvi Niranjan Jyoti, Prime Minister Narendra Modi today himself condemned the remark in the Rajya Sabha.

Narendra Modi while appealing to the members to allow the house function, said that such fowl language should not be used by anybody. Modi said the minister had already apologised for her remark, and in future nobody such thing should not happen.

The upper house members were adamant on their demand that PM himself should come to the house and make statement. However even after the PM's statement in Rajya Sabha, opposition was not in mood to let the house function, forcing the speaker to adjourn the house again and again. 

Opposition leaders like CPM's Sitaram Yechuri, JDU's Sharad Yadav said that mere apology was not enough and the minister should be sacked.

Union Parliamentary Affairs minister Venkaiah Naidu criticised the opposition members for their stand while saying that since the PM on their demand has himself made the statement in the house, so the matter should be closed and the normal proceeding of the house be allowed.

Sadhvi Niranjan Jyoti, who proved to be a major embarrassment for her party because of her abusive remark against the non-NDA, non-BJP parties had already tender her apology in the Rajya Sabha. 

The over-enthusiastic minister while addressing a public rally in Delhi on Sunday with respect to upcoming assembly elections had said, "The people of Delhi have to decide if they want a government of Ramzaadon (descendants of Ram) or haramzaadon (those who are illegitimately born)."

Not only this, the minister had also kicked off a religious row by saying that everyone in India is descendant of lord Rama. The opposition parties has termed this statement as communal.
